Inpatient Mental Health Services are available. Inpatient psychiatry is a 29 bed, locked unit with 24-hour monitoring and nursing supervision. The unit provides a safe environment for veterans in crisis. Veterans hospitalized on this unit are assigned a treatment team which consists of a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, and nurse. Treatment plans are tailored to meet each veterans needs. Group and individual therapy is available to all inpatients.

With guidance from the NRC, the LRC will implement measures to assess recovery policy and procedure adherence, as well as assess the extent that the recovery model is embodied in the mental health programs.
